Arbor Heights Elementary School demolition, four weeks in

As our short Instagram clip shows, the last building semi-standing at the old Arbor Heights Elementary School is getting the wrecking-ball-style treatment right now. It’s been exactly four weeks after the heavy-duty equipment first dug into the buildings there, almost ceremonially, on the Friday afternoon before Labor Day. Now the campus is piled high with rubble:

Once the site clearing is done, the project is expected to stop down from November to February. For a look at the new school that will then be built, check our coverage of the community briefing/Q-A meeting in June.

ADDED: Thanks to Mike R. for the view looking eastward over the full site:

We’ll check this weekend on the other old West Seattle school being demolished to make room for a replacement, Genesee Hill.

    I was in Second Use this weekend and noticed Arbor Heights School shelving and cabinets, cabinets and more cabinets were recycled. Nice old wood and metal.

    Second Use is on Sixth Ave in SoDo if you are not familiar – should be on every home renovator’s rotation.

    They also have a website, fyi.

Sorry, comment time is over.
